The Growing Cancer of Child Sexual Exploitation on the Web
This is an interesting story - our own spokesperson for the Homeland Security Department gets another "honorable" mention - can't trust anyone....
One of the people responsible for protecting children was recently accused of being a predator himself. A spokesperson for the Homeland Security Department was put on unpaid leave after being charged on April 4 with "preying on a child" through online sexual conversations with an undercover detective who was posing as a 14-year-old girl. - He even sent pictures of himself right from his office wearing a Homeland Security pin!!! *Sigh*
Everyone has heard stories about predators lurking online, searching for young children on whom to prey. The sorry truth is that the problem is growing increasingly severe. Fingers are pointing in every direction; no one really knows where to place the blame.
"It's not windows and cellar doors that sexual predators look for. It's your child's computer screen," reads an ad by the Advertising Council, a private nonprofit organization that produces public service announcement campaigns to raise awareness and inspire action.
